‘Red Alert’ Protest For Net Neutrality Starts May 9

Net neutrality activists and websites like Etsy, Tumblr, Postmates, Foursquare and Twilio will post “red alerts” starting May 9 to protest the FCC’s effort to roll back Obama-era net neutrality protections. From a report: This latest protest, announced Monday, is set to coincide with the next step in an ongoing process in the Senate to use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to halt the Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of the 2015 net neutrality rules. On May 9, senators will present a petition to force a vote on a resolution to undo the FCC’s net neutrality rollback. The CRA gives Congress 60 legislative days in which to roll back the FCC’s decision. The countdown for the rollback effort began in February when the FCC published its order in the Federal Register to repeal the rules.
